3 stars A Passion Play is a great album, a good concept and entirely progressive. Bombastic in terms of the poetical meanderings and lyrics but hey this was 1973. Ian Anderson had license to thrill and be as creative as he wanted. Chrysalis did not mind either. It is made up of two parts and is largely keyboard driven, Guitars not as prominent. Whilst there was a certain amount of negative criticism from the press regarding A Passion Play, it's still defied the critics and did well, especially in USA.

Nothing earth shattering here but most Tull fans will give this a favourable nod. The late seventies was a true return to form for JT before the challenging 80's. A good album. Three stars.
